Clients choosing to streamline the construction process can use Frank O. Zeise Construction’s design/build services. This process combines the function of an architect, engineer and construction manager into a single entity. As a construction management organization, Zeise Construction’s staff includes professionals in all areas, from estimating, scheduling and procurement, to construction administration, safety, quality, cost control and MEP coordination and commissioning. Because of the coordination of these professional services, design/build optimizes the use of time and money. The result is commonly referred to as “fast-track” construction, where certain design and building functions can be overlapped to speed up the project completion. Budgets are also established early in the project. Once basic requirements are defined, long lead-time materials can be ordered early, also leading to an earlier occupancy. In a similar fashion, value engineering provides the foundation for reducing costs without sacrificing quality, resulting in the lowest life cycle costs for the intended use of a facility. The design/build solution covers all aspects of design and construction management and therefore offers a unique platform to save you time and money.
